Most Controversial Raw Food Debate Of All Time
This video was filmed at a Raw Food Culinary Showcase which took place in Jamaica around about the year 2000. It shows very clearly the different ideas that have been promoted in the raw food world over the last few decades. Some of the opinions given are quite clearly anti-fruit. Also, very small amounts of fruit are recommended in some of the comments.
You can watch this yourself and make up your own mind as to who you think is most believable. I have only ever attended Fruit festivals and have almost never seen this anti- fruit message being promoted. However, I know that this was once a big part of the raw food movement.
The truth is, if you give up on fruit you are going to struggle to maintain a raw diet. There is simply no better staple for a raw diet (or for that matter any person’s diet) than to eat sweet fruit.
Join us at the Fruitfest this year to learn more about thriving long term on a fruit based raw vegan diet.
